When we first wrote about Jackpotjoy in the early days of UK Casinos Online – the predecessor of Spins – we described it as a unique online gaming product. It featured over 40 games with multi-player chat and prize points for free players. However since then the brand has grown massively and whilst it’s offering is perhaps less unique casino and slots players have plenty to enjoy on mobile, tablet and desktop. Furthermore it’s now a no wagering brand.
Jackpotjoy Welcome Offer
New players to Jackpotjoy are offered a choice of free bingo tickets or free spins. To claim the bonus you need to register, deposit and spend £10 on any games. If you select the spins then you will receive 30 free spins (1p coin size, maximum lines) for the game Double Bubble. Jackpotjoy is a no wagering terms site and therefore this means that any wins generated from these spins (or bingo tickets if you choose them) will be paid as real cash.
Bingo has dominated the Jackpotjoy landscape in recent times, mainly during The Queen Of Bingo period. Paddy McGuinness has taken over the royalty role from Barbara Windsor but slots now take a bigger billing. This is underlined by the site’s recent makeover to make it much more mobile friendly. Some slots have been dropped because of this, but plenty more have been added to fill the games.
Slots available at Jackpotjoy includes Cleopatra, Agatha Christie’s Murder On the Orient Express, BangHai, Beat The Bobbies, Blood Suckers II, El Jackpotto, Double Bubble, Fluffy Too, Ghostbusters Triple Slime, Guns N Roses and The Naked Gun. These are joined by Gamesys progressives such as Deal Or No Deal and Wonderland. The Deal Or No Deal slot was one of the first big UK progressive games and created a number of millionaires. The jackpots tend not to climb so high these days though. All slots can be played in demo mode so you can try them out.
You’ll find a number of casino games at JackpotjoyThese include single deck blackjack, multihand blackjack, european roulette, roulette splendide, pai gow poker, keno and caribbean stud poker. A handful of live games are also available and these include Crazy Time, Monopoly Live, Mega Ball, Live Deal Or No Deal, Nice Dice and Dream Catcher. A few years ago Virgin Games offered more table games but Gamesys have levelled up all their brands and all now offer pretty much the same games.
Daily Free Game
Promotions wise there’s often a handful of casino and slot themed promos every month. Bingo used to take the upper hand though but these days we think slots have crept ahead. Again we’d like to see more but perhaps we’re being a little greedy. Depositors can play a daily free game (Doubly Bubbly, Paper Wins, Tiki’s Catch Of The Day) to play for free spins provided they meet the required qualifier. Note that deposit bonuses are rarely offered to existing players but you can win Box Bonanza games which give you the chance to collect a cash prize – no wagering terms apply.
The Spins Verdict
Jackpotjoy is still a great destination for slot players, although it’s perhaps lost a little ground to others whilst acing it with it’s bingo product. The recent site makeover and addition of their own slots is good news. However, the fact that you can play a wide range of it’s games at the likes of Gamesys Sister Sites, Virgin Games and Star Spins, does dilute it’s unique position. That said, it does have some great slots and big money progressives which may explain why it still remains one of the best gaming destinations in The UK.
